Special Issue "Fabrication of 1D and 2D Nanomaterials"
A special issue of Materials (ISSN 1996-1944).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 30 September 2020.
Interests: III-V nanomaterials; energy storage materials; carbon nanotubes; new carbon nanomaterials; nanocomposites; meta-materials
Low-dimensional material systems is a rapidly evolving area of science and engineering that promises to create new techniques to manufacture devices and develop advanced technology. Novel nanofabrication is fundamentally changing the way materials and devices will be produced and will be central to the next era of technology. The capability of developing processes for the fabrication of materials at the nanometer-scale and applying their unique properties to device applications will have a tremendous impact on nanotechnology, industry and society. In spite of a number of advantages and the outstanding properties of low-dimensional materials such as one-dimensional (1D) and two-dimensional (2D) nanomaterials, the scalable fabrication of 1D and 2D nanomaterials is still a challenging research topic in terms of fabrication cost, the quality of the product and manufacturability.
We would like to invite you to contribute to a Special Issue of Materials dedicated to the ‘Fabrication of 1D and 2D nanomaterials’. In this Special Issue, we will summarize and highlight the current status of the emerging field of nanometer-scale devices as well as the fabrication and characterization of low-dimensional materials.
Research topics of interest may include, but are not limited to: the fabrication of hybrid nanomaterials consisting of 1D and 2D materials, the fabrication of nanomaterials based on ‘top-down approach’ and ‘bottom-up approach’, graphene and 2D materials other than graphene, the low-cost fabrication of low-dimensional materials, new carbon nanomaterials, the manufacturing of nanomaterials, computational studies of low-dimensional materials, defects in nanomaterials and nanocharacterization techniques.
This open call will accept both research-based and review article submissions on this topic. All manuscripts submitted to the Special Issue will be subject to the usual high-level review process as manuscripts submitted through the regular submission route.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Materials is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2000 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
